Despite his fame and fortune, Bill Cosby’s bad behavior spoke to the realities and pervasiveness of our rape culture, one which has long sanctioned and even encouraged this type of behavior for the ordinary man.
Sorry boys, game over.
Cosby has now been sentenced to at least 3 years in a state prison for sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.
Led away in handcuffs, a judge has just denied 81-year-old Cosby bail and he headed to jail.
Our system is finally holding sexual abusers accountable no matter how powerful and no matter how long ago it occurred. The Republican claim that you can’t hold Kavanaugh responsible for what he did decades ago no longer holds true.
That “Get Out of Jail Card” may finally be played out.
